Volaris inaugurates its new Mexico City-Fresno, California route
The Mexican airline has the largest number of routes and operations in the Californian city
Volaris, the ultra-low-cost Mexican airline that operates in Mexico, the United States and Central America, today inaugurated its new Mexico City (MEX) -Fresno, California (FAT) route with four weekly frequencies on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
In the midst of the new normal, Volaris is the largest airline in Fresno, California with the most routes and active operations. Since 2011, it has transported more than 1 million Customers to and from Fresno, California. During November 2020, it will connect the city with 4 destinations directly: Guadalajara, León, Morelia and the recently inaugurated Mexico City.
“The launch of the new Volaris route between Fresno International Airport and Mexico City further expands the international gateway to the Central Valley of California, which now extends to the capital of Mexico and adds a fourth destination served by Volaris, ”said Director of Aviation Kevin Meikle. "As air travel continues to increase across the country, the high volume of passengers to international markets is key to our resilience as a leading airport in terms of passenger traffic recovery," he added.
For her part, Adriana González Carrillo, Consul General of Mexico in Fresno, California stated: "The direct flight between the country's Capital and Fresno will provide more trade opportunities and will open the door to southern Mexico for binational families and tourism." .
It should be noted that since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Volaris has smoothly transported almost 6 million passengers in Mexico and to the United States, and is the first airline to receive the CDMX Tourist Security Stamp for the early and successful implementation of its Biosafety Protocol. Similarly, Volaris joined the list of companies that receive the Global Security Seal (Safe Travels Stamp), awarded by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC, for its acronym in English), and that will contribute to recovering the traveler confidence.
“We are very happy because we are the first ultra-low-cost airline to operate in Fresno, California, as well as being the largest in the city, with more routes and active operations, so we will continue to transport thousands of Customers throughout the year and now we will connect you with Mexico City, one of the main tourist destinations in our country. That is why the inauguration of this route is so important for economic recovery on both sides of the border, ”said Miguel Aguiñiga, Director of Market Development and Distribution at Volaris.
Volaris remains committed to offering safe trips so that more friends and family can find each other while traveling peacefully thanks to its strict Biosafety Protocol. Additionally, as an introductory fee, the airline offers 3,320 seats available starting at $ 89.99 to fly during November from Mexico City (MEX) to Fresno, California (FAT).
